Neverending Story uses improvisational piecing within the structure of the square and was inspired by some of Ashley from Film in the Fridge’s work. Read on as Cara answers a few questions on the creation of this quilt.
Question: What was your inspiration for this quilt?
Cara: Well, I’d amassed quite the collection of Heather Ross Munki Munki fabric through Flickr swaps and TJ Maxx pajama purchases and wanted to showcase my favorite prints in a fun way. To someone who is unfamiliar with Heather Ross’ work or Munki Munki, the quilt probably looks like a hot mess of novelty prints but I love having them all together in one quilt.
Question: What is your favorite part of this quilt?
Cara: Definitely the back, with the way the charms are lined up in color order down the center. It makes my ROY G. BIV heart happy.
Question: What did you learn making this quilt?
Cara: At the time, this quilt was my first attempt at improv blocks so I learned a lot along the way in terms of balancing blocks visually and the importance of picking the right prints and solids to compliment and not compete with the center fabric. I also learned that it’s worth every hour spent to have a back of a quilt as fun and interesting as the front.
